The Pohutukawa House / Matthew Gribben Architecture

The Pohutukawa House stands at the coastal foreshore of a wild beach on a site almost overgrown with mature Pohutukawa trees.

The positions of the existing trees and their twisted limbs have been closely mapped and the house has been designed to occupy the residual space that the trees have left (beside and under the trees). The striking geometry of the house has been developed in direct response to the available residual space, while maintaining a maximum height profile that approximates the top of the tree canopy — via ArchDaily
